About Australian Aid

It makes a world of difference.

Australian Aid is the name we give to the many significant ways that we come together to help communities reduce poverty and build a better and fairer future.

In the last 20 years, humanity has made great progress in shaping a more just and equal world. Together, through Australian Aid, we have played a part in that story. We want to call Australians to celebrate our important contributions on the world stage, and ensure that as a nation we are for Australian Aid.

Why Now?

Australia’s foreign aid budget has suffered from successive cuts, and has lost the bi-partisan support it once held. These have dramatically set back our national contribution to the crucial progress of international development.

Australian Aid makes an incredible difference in the lives of people across our region, and across the world. Now is a critical time for us to stand up for this life-changing work.

We’re for Australian Aid

The Campaign for Australian Aid is a joint initiative of the Make Poverty History and Micah Australia coalitions, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation- for all Australians who believe we can and should do more as a nation to end extreme poverty around the world.

The Campaign for Australian Aid is not politically aligned. We are seeking to increase political support for aid from across the political spectrum. From time to time we will promote and share positive statements about aid from a range of candidates and political parties. Sharing this information does not indicate support for or endorsement of that candidate or political party.

Join us!

Now, more than ever, Australia needs strong support behind the life-changing work of aid. Add your voice to the movement committed to a brighter future for Australian Aid.
